Make 2021 a 10 out of 10

Two-thirds of DeltaV™ facilities in Central Texas and the Texas Gulf Coast are exposed to safety and security risks

The global process industry loses $20 billion each year through avoidable, unscheduled downtime, according to an ARC Advisory Group study. In terms of cybersecurity and safety, cyberattacks are among the top five risks to operations and critical infrastructure globally*, and the number of attacks has increased by 67 percent in the last five years**.

Puffer-Sweiven finds a majority of petrochemical, chemical, refining, and pharmaceutical customer facilities in Central Texas and the Texas Gulf Coast may not be aware of potential risks to system availably, safety, and security, with two-thirds of customers at a Guardian Health Score at or below five.

A score can range from zero to 10, with 10 being the best.
